RALEIGH, N.C. —A chairman of the state House Finance Committee says he’s stepping down over displeasure with decisions of the Republican-led legislature and mistreatment from Speaker Thom Tillis.
Rep. Robert Brawley of Mooresville issued a resignation letter Wednesday on the House floor.
Brawley claimed Tillis intimidated him over a bill broadening the service area of local cable provider MI Connections because Tillis has a business relationship with Time Warner Cable. Tillis’ spokesman said he isn’t aware of any relationship.
